The PlayStation 4 got an unexpected reprieve

The PlayStation 4 got an unexpected reprieve

It's not exactly a secret that the PlayStation 5 is a hard-to-find console and has been since the day it launched. With no sign that the console shortage is going to get better in the near future, Sony has apparently decided to continue on with PS4 production longer than it originally anticipated. This serves a few different purposes, but the most important one is keeping players in the PlayStation ecosystem as we wait for PS5 stock levels to normalize.

God of War PC impressions: A masterpiece for a new audience

God of War PC impressions: A masterpiece for a new audience

When Sony started announcing PC ports of some of its first-party exclusive games, I wasn't surprised to see titles like Horizon Zero Dawn and Days Gone make the jump. Both are relatively new franchises, after all, and while there's a lot of excitement for Horizon Forbidden West, I'm not so sure we can call Horizon one of Sony's heavy hitters yet. By contrast, I was floored when Sony revealed that God of War would also be making the jump to PC. That was a game that I never expected to see anywhere other than PlayStation consoles, but here we are, just a couple of days out from its release on Steam, the Epic Games Store, Humble, and more.

Unsurprisingly, most of the comments on the video talk about how closely Sony's new creations resemble already existing Teslas.

PS VR2 is coming to PS5 with Horizon Call of the Mountain as an exclusive

The PlayStation 4 brought virtual reality (VR) to consoles for the first time and fans have been wondering exactly what Sony has in store for the PS5. The PS5 has been on the market for over a year now and it was way back in March of 2021 that Sony took the wraps off the new PS5 VR controllers. Sony is calling its next-generation system, the somewhat unimaginatively titled, PS VR2, while the previously controllers have also been officially named and are henceforth known as the PS VR2 Sense.

Sony Mobility revealed with conceptual EV Vision-S SUV

Japanese electronics giant Sony has made a few important announcements at 2022 CES. In its keynote presentation earlier today, Sony has unveiled a new concept SUV called the Vision-S 02.

Sony wants your TV to watch you as much as you watch your TV, with the new Bravia Cam promising more than just video calls from its perch above your screen.

How to Choose the Right Gaming Monitor for Your PS5

How to Choose the Right Gaming Monitor for Your PS5

When choosing a gaming monitor for your PS5, the first thing to remember is that Sony designed the PS5 knowing it is primarily used in living rooms (via BBC). This means displays best suited for the console align with standard TV resolutions and 16:9 or 21:9 widescreen aspect ratios.

In particular, Sony has targeted 4K Ultra HD (UHD) TVs with High Dynamic Range (HDR) support for gaming and entertainment on the PS5, although it will also support video output at up to 8K resolutions. 8K TVs, however, are still prohibitively expensive for the most part, and frame rates at this resolution will take a substantial drop when full support for native 8K resolutions is added by Sony in a future update.

What’s the Difference Between PlayStation Plus and PlayStation Now?

What’s the Difference Between PlayStation Plus and PlayStation Now?

Sony's PlayStation platform extends beyond the console itself, encompassing multiple services, including PlayStation Now (PS Now) and PlayStation Plus (PS Plus). Both of these services are optional and, because of the naming structure, it can be easy to mix them up. In reality, both are very different from each other, and there's an easy way to quickly tell them apart.
